    You think they inadvertently put two mic connectors on a tx?

    URSA Strap Big Pouch Too Small for G3??

    They will fit G3s, but it's a tight fit, especially on a new strap. I've mostly put 2000s in Ursa straps, but they're the same form factor. The material is really stretchy, don't be afraid to give it a pull. It's the stretchiness that keeps the pack in the pouch. Get the clip off and it'll be easier to get them in there. If you really want to keep the clip on, you can.

    is it waterproof?

    Was this intentionally done because you're targeting sports who might now and then hit (often literally so!) an issue with one lav? (thus leaving the other one free as an audio source)

    The unit is 4.8 " x 1.7" x .4 inches. It would be great for car visors. Where thin and stereo would be a great combination. Making the decision to go microdot was not easy but it was a good one. While we have had stereo body packs this is the first with 2 separate mic connectors. Glenn

    Iron - tut tut - don't blame other departments. I've worked with picture departments on sound who have taught me stuff and could blow many sound dept folk away with their ability (privately one in mind with an Oscar nomination: his ex assistants taught me, they all helped me, and everyone helped to get the job done). Scott, I also love and trust the PPM - after all, it's how I learnt my trade. And whilst having assisted in music I never had the same trust (actually, embarrassingly, less trust but understanding through practice) in the VU on the consoles. Even when I don't plug the PPMs in I still hang onto them: I know the 'trust' is from a broadcast basis but it's also from knowing what's what in practice.

    Sure will. I'm also imagining it being helpful in situations with tight clothes where this will be a big help, and with it bendable it could contour with the body

    Just! Glad to see it is out, as missing features like pre-roll at launch seemed like a big oversight.

    The thinner size could find a few uses outside sports: car visors? Headwear mounted? Etc
  13. Hey there, just purchased my first two Ursa straps, and I'm disappointed to find the sewn pouch (on the "big pouch" version) isn't actually big enough to house a G3 transmitter. They are just big enough to fit the clip in, but I thought the whole point was to put the whole transmitter in the pouch! Am I missing something here?

    4.8" x 1.7" x 0.4" and 3 oz so about twice the footprint as the other ZMTs, but 2/3rds as thick - plus bendable, rubberized, internal battery, dual inputs...

    Wow! I wonder what the actual size is. The picture makes it look rather large, but I suppose thats deceptive. Microdot inputs huh? Interesting new direction for Zaxcom... "perfect for" dap mics... -Mike

    Well that is sad, as the sound post department should be more experienced working tracks. You'd more expect that type of ignorant comment to come from the visual side of things who are just cutting the picture

    Hot off Zaxcom’s Twitter account, a wireless transmitter/recorder for sports applications. Features include mono/stereo transmission (with two Microdot mic inputs), timecode-enabled recording, NeverClip, and ZaxNet. It weighs 3 oz/85 g, transmits with power up to 75 mW, and available info at this time points to a removable, non-standard, lithium-ion battery. The body of the transmitter can bend, definitely making it a competitor to the Q5x PlayerMic. Prices are around $2500 USD as of writing.

    Sound Devices MixPre version 3.0 Now Released

    No flames, Jon, this is totally appropriate and welcome. I am always pleased to have manufacturers making posts like this. My only concern, as everyone is well aware, is the abuse of this section by a few in the past, and when this section is used as a substitute for normal and professional product support that should happen directly with manufacturer or dealer. We do have one thread currently regarding one company's support (or lack of support) and I'm not quite sure what to do about it.
  21. I'm posting this here in the equipment section. Don't flame me since this isn't an advertisement, but a notice for existing users - smiley face. https://www.sounddevices.com/support/downloads To apply the ambisonics plugin, which works with the MixPre-6 and MixPre-10T (only), update to 3.0 first, then download the plugin at no charge from: https://store.sounddevices.com/product/ambisonics-plugin/

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I've just installed it I can confirm they have fixed a bug I reported (crazy channel gain in basic mode when unlinking channels 1 and 2 on the MixPre 3). There is also preroll (on the MixPre 3, 2 seconds at 96 KHz, 5 at 44.1 KHz) and, big thank you, they listened and added phase reverse to the MixPre 3 inputs. Some more changes, so far sounds great

    At the 2nd show Roscoe got deeply into a circular-breathing-powered multiphonic multitone thing on his soprano sax--just wild and mind blowing. I had the privilege of being able to solo him and hear exactly what he was doing, which was incredible. Later when I looked at that audio in RX I could see all the pitches flying all over the place. This gig was a scramble, but way worth it.

    Mr. Mitchell is the real deal. I first encountered the Art Ensemble of Chicago at the Ann Arbor Jazz and Blues Festival in the early ‘70’s. Had no idea what I was walking into🙂. In the ‘80’s we shot a sequence with them as part of a longer documentary encompassing the African-American music scene in Chicago (produced for Disney, which was truly bizarre). We were fortunate to have filmed it in a good sized room at the South Shore Country Club (also the setting for the exterior of one a scene for “Blues Brothers” before it was renovated). The room acoustics really added to the sequence, and group knew how to play it to their advantage. Kicking myself for not making copies of those multi-tracks before they landed in the Disney vaults, where they will most likely remain (along with some other good performances and interviews). -Scott
